PRETTY MAIDS - MotherlandIn 2010, made a splash throughout parts of with their   charting well.  The have been around much longer than that of course, and regarding this new album, lead vocalist Ronnie Atkins recently proclaimed “We knew it was going to be a tough to follow! I remember back in the day when we had to follow- albums like Future World, we tried more or less to copy the songs from the previous to keep the same kind of balance.  But this time we just wrote what came natural to us and that’s what became .”

Despite producing some top quality rocking golden nuggets like To Fool a Nation, or of All Lies and Infinity, feels too disjointed and unfocused overall.  Producer Jacob Hansen isn’t to blame for this as the sound of is lush and ideal for these Danish rockers.

Whilst listening to the 1 songs on offer, you get the feeling that some songs just aren’t as as others.  Interestingly enough, Atkins expressed “The recordings went smooth to begin with, but then we had to start touring again during the weekends and this created some stress.”  Quite plausibly, this negative shadow may have been responsible for the unsettled of quality on this album?

will love  regardless, and new ears will find plenty to embrace when they hear the subtle similarities (in the vocal department) on songs like I See Ghosts, To Fool a Nation and Sad to See You Suffer.

On reflection, may have benefited from fewer songs, especially Confession which is an atmospheric minute and forty-four second narrative about good guys finishing last.  This  won’t be held in such high regard like predecessors Future World or , but will be welcomed by loyal nevertheless.
